    I find it interesting that when checked last Friday Darkwood - Dan Price was £25 and today it is listed at £60. Read into that what you will - the only rumours I hear are the ones posted here :)

    That would certainly indicate the Darkwood rumour is accurate.

    Although St Andrews Variations is still listed at £25..... so perhaps not a precise barometer!

    Better get the £25 copy of St Andrews Variations quick before someone realises they've missed a trick :)

    My bad - there are two versions of St Andrew's Variations and the one for 4th section refers to the £55 unabridged!

    I think this marks the first repeated Area test piece in my banding life - played Land of the Long White Cloud in 1995

    Different secion though this time so I still havent repeated an Area test piece

    I think March will be a free for all, everyone stands a chance of qualifying, because whilst Pageantry is a good piece, I don't think it will challenge the championship section bands!!

    I'm really looking forward to Pageantry - haven't ever contested on it before.
    And I think it is going to challenge bands, just like Festival Music, Salute to Youth and Rienzi did after people complained they were too old/easy/boring....

    So in Yorkshire for example it's really going to allow the adjudicator to separate Dyke from B&R from Grimethorpe from CMFC from Rothwell etc......?

    The cat is truly amongst the pigeons with this one (assuming that the adjudicator can stay awake long enough zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz)
  16. Going to be good for next year

    Sure it wasnt the "score" only which is priced at £25 on Just Music

    Didn't really want to go next year and St. Andrews Variations for the 4th section has made my choice easy, what a truly awful slap in the face for that section.

    No - I made sure of that and it wasn't Just Music site :)
